We also emphasize the Arts, Physical Education, and out of the classroom such as field trips, class buddies, guest speakers, and assemblies. Staff and students work together to create a safe and friendly campus where everyone is treated with respect. When that doesn’t happen, we work collaboratively to solve it.
San Miguel provides opportunities for students as they strive to reach their potential as learners and citizens.
Students can receive one on one, or small group instruction in the classroom and in our Response To Intervention (RTI) program. They receive guidance specific to their areas of need, whether it be for remediation, or enrichment for the students needing a greater challenge. Our Reading Challenge incentive program promotes reading for enjoyment and the added practice greatly improves reading skills. Students are motivated to read by recognition for their successes.
Field Trips and family social events (such as Bingo night) provide opportunities for students and families to get to know one another in a different setting. Our Friday Morning Assembly honors students’ special achievements. This short but powerful weekly meeting brings all students and staff together and builds community. Yard supervisors meet regularly to discuss issues of discipline and school climate. All staff are instructed in positive discipline methods including Building Effective Schools Together (BEST) and the Toolbox Tools.
There are many opportunities for parental involvement at San Miguel. Parents volunteer in classrooms (or can bring work home), chaperone field trips, organize and work special events like Elves Workshop, field day, picture day, join the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) or the School Site Council. We find that having parents involved helps with communication and creates a community, family feeling at San Miguel.
